Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump said he isn’t part of the establishment anymore and he doesn’t need them, referencing establishment donors, but then added that in the past 48-hours, he’s fundraised at least $12 million dollars for the GOP.

“Between yesterday and today, we raised 12 or 13 million dollars for the Republican Party,” Trump told his supporters, who were packed into the Mystère Theater at Treasure Island in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday morning. “I like doing it.”

“I actually have a lot of support, but they don’t talk to the people that support,” Trump said about the media reporting about the Republicans who aren’t getting behind Trump as the nominee. “Wayne Issa, who is a great guy, Congressman. So many of the Republicans are so supportive.”

Trump most likely meant to reference Congressman Darrell Issa.

He also touted a revision of his campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” following the terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida last weekend, saying it’s to “Make America Safe Again.”
